This festive season we will have our full range of Chocolate filled Christmas experience to enjoy with your loved ones or team away from the busy-ness of the city in our Cocoa Academy. We can't wait to be able to share a special hot chocolate with you this year and see what you craft. Our Chocolate Bar Making workshops have gone completely festive with your chance to craft a Chocolate Christmas Tree or Sparkling Star or why not learn how to craft your own Chocolate Truffles this Christmas to give that special gift with our Festival Chocolate Truffle Making Workshop or Create and decorate your own Christmas Cottage.

Our workshops make a perfect chocolate making experience for families and teams looking for a special chocolatey celebration this year to enjoy together.
